Yutong 20 fuel cell city buses to be operated in Zhengzhou. This is the first time for Zhengzhou to apply the hydrogen powered bus, which is independently developed by Yutong Company. Compared to full electric buses with 200km driving range after being charged for two hours, the hydrogen fuel cell buses boast 500km driving range and less than 10 minutes refueling time. Apart from these two advantages, this new energy bus has also achieved zero pollution and “negative” emissions. Improvements have been achieved in terms of vehicle safety, acceleration, shock absorption and convenience, bringing passengers and drivers more comfortable, convenient and user-friendly experience.
During the operation of Yutong hydrogen fuel cell city buses, they can eliminate 99.9 pecent of the inhalable particles in the atmosphere by absorbing air pollutants, effectively remove ultra-fine dust smaller than PM2.5, and emit clean water and air,” said Guo Yongshan from the New Energy Product Department of Yutong Company.
aking the physically challenged passengers into consideration, the vehicle has the kneeling function to reduce the body floor by ten centimeters on the service door side, thus facilitating the their boarding and alighting. Meanwhile, the manually controlled ramp can help the wheelchair users to get on and off the bus easily.
Furthermore, the vehicle is equipped with four hydrogen leakage sensors. When the hydrogen concentration reaches 1.6 percent, the alarm is triggered. When it reaches 2 percent, the hydrogen supply will be cut off, and the alarm on the dashboard will alert the driver to take corresponding measures as soon as possible. In addition, the vehicle is also provided with two sets of video surveillance systems, and totally seven cameras are available to provide an overall surveillance so as to guarantee the safety of the vehicle.
